“When I was young, the Dead Sea was still alive.” -- George Burns


Hey, everyone! Just a quick note to let you know it’s my mom’s 79th birthday today, and it would be really awesome if you’d read or listen to her autobiography, LEGENDS AND LIPSTICK: MY SCANDALOUS STORIES OF HOLLYWOOD’S GOLDEN ERA (by Nancy Bacon)

Five Star Review:

Couldn't put this one down

This is a fascinating, unvarnished look at Hollywood in the ‘50s and ‘60s through the eyes of a (very) young woman as she rises through the ranks of pinup modeling and moviemaking while dating or simply going to bed with some of the most famous and famous-adjacent men of the age. But that’s only part of it. What sets this apart from your standard Hollywood memoir is Bacon’s writing – half-Edward Bunker/Ross MacDonald hardboiled crime-style whether animatedly relating the various cons and grifts her friends employ to get by (from crashing on sets to selling celebrity gossip to the highest bidder) to a grim retelling of encounters with and concerning the aftermath of the Manson killings. –Mark Wheaton
